Why Clippers sale was legal, even without Donald Sterling consent

Through the tumultuous legal battle that occurred between the NBA and Donald Sterling, a rarely enacted probate provision soon took the foreground for an important legal move. After Sterling’s racial comments and the media attention that it attracted, the NBA immediately began to move towards the sale of the LA Clippers. After Donald Sterling was fined $2.5 million and banned...

Radamel Falcao thanks Man United fans for warm reception

Colombian striker Radamel Falcao joined Manchester United on loan, in a last minute surprise acquisition on signing day. He came on in the 67th minute with United already 4-0 up and almost added to the scoreline with a chance towards the end of the game. Almost. So close, but his first brace as a member of United will have to come another day. Perhaps versus Leicester this Sundayâ€...

Buffalo Bills: this defense is for real

The Bills look good. Yes, you read that correctly. It’s only two weeks into the season, but the Buffalo Bills sit atop the AFC East as one of only six teams who are 2-0 heading into a Monday night showdown between the Colts and Eagles. On a day where Bills fans were not only able to celebrate the tremendous strength of Jim Kelly and the fact that they’ll remain in Buffalo under...

New Irish QB Coach key to Everrett Golson’s improvement

Yes, I know it’s only been three games against average to below average competition, but Irish quarterback Everett Golson looks like the best signal caller in the nation so far during the 2014 season. For a guy who sat out all of 2013, Golson has been unbelievably sharp in games against the overmatched Owls of Rice, the always underachieving team from up north and the god awful...

We’ve also heard that Cristiano Ronaldo wants out of the Spanish Capital. It seems very likely...

The biggest news in the United Kingdom right now is the vote on independence for Scotland. The referendum on independence takes place on Thursday and polls show that Scots are split 50/50 on whether or not they want...

Liverpool news and notes: Sterling, Origi, Johnson

Obviously the setback to Aston Villa at Anfield was hugely disappointing. However, it’s not a catastrophe for Liverpool. The Villans are surprisingly off to their best start since 1998. No one could have predicted that AVFC would be this good, and Liverpool will be fine once they get Daniel Sturridge back. With that in mind let’s look at the Liverpool news making the rounds on...

VIDEO: Falcao, Di Maria, Mata post Man United victory interviews

It’s a huge relief for Manchester United; getting their fist win of the season, and the first victory for Louis van Gaal with the Red Devils. They defeated Queens Park Rangers four to nil at Old Trafford with Angel Di Maria earning “man of the match.” His free kick scored the first goal, and the most expensive transfer, £59.7m, in British history, is already starting to pay...

Sure the victim was newly promoted Queens Park Rangers, but this victory was extremely celebrated by Man United fans. Louis van Gaal earned his first W as leader at Old Trafford, and given the disastrous start he got off to, this was kind of a big deal. We were worried a #BeforeLVGWinsAtUnited hash tag was going to start circulating. That’s over now, as Louis van Gaal is off the...

VIDEO: Cris Carter takes Ray Lewis to task, Lewis fails

Kudos to ESPN Sunday NFL Countdown’s Cris Carter for putting Ray Lewis on the spot this morning when discussing the Ray Rice saga. Lewis fails miserably though in his attempt at explaining himself. It’s unintentional comedy ensuing as Lewis tries to defer everything to God, while also eschewing some leadership cliches and other platitude mumbo jumbo. Enjoy: Sorry, the for moments...

Danica Patrick crashes into boyfriend at Chicagoland

Danica Patrick started 18th and finished 19th tonight in the Cup race at Chicagoland Speedway; her “homecoming race.” That’s a very pedestrian showing, but still an above average place placement for her. It’s a good run for Danica. That’s not newsworthy though, the fact that she bumped into her boyfriend, the man that she allegedly, supposedly divorced her husband in order...

Notre Dame 30, Purdue 14: the Shamrock Series in Tweets

Purdue didn’t defeat Notre Dame, but at least they covered the spread. (Hence the Bart Simpson GIF above) The Boilermakers gave a noble effort in a match-up in which most observers felt they had zero chance. The Fighting Irish won by 16 in a game that was pretty close for three quarters and change. We learned a lot: -Everett Golson is invaluable to ND -Cam McDaniel is the best...

Louis van Gaal thinks Man United can still win title

Louis van Gaal isn’t wrong. It’s still very early in the Premier League season. The championship race is wide open; despite the terrible start for Manchester United. The Red Devils acquired just two points from their first three matches. That’s worse than it sounds though because United’s early fixtures were pretty weak. This was supposed the time to rack up victories and...
